Rusty Melle and his wife Kelly (ITG Realty) started Coloring the Causeway about four years ago, after we lost Rusty's mother to Colon Cancer. We thought it would be a wonderful way to honor her fight and help locals and their families in their fight. Every year we work in conjunction with the Melbourne Music Marathon to put on a 5k walk over the Melbourne causeway and back. We encourage our walkers to dress in the cancer awareness color of their choice or in rain bow colors, like i do to show all the colors of cancer. We have two wonderful organizations who benefit from our walk; Cancer Centers Foundation of Brevard & SCREW Cancer (Surviving Cancer Requires Eternal Will)
